Top 5 Benefits of Buying Your Glasses in Person


Many activities and everyday tasks have moved to the virtual world. With a Google search, people can find plenty of content online. There are apps for doctor’s appointments, school and even grocery shopping. Trendy apps and websites are now an option, but sometimes it may be beneficial to handle business in person. For example, people may think buying glasses online is the best choice. However, here are the top five benefits of buying your glasses in-store...

Popular Styles and Brands

The internet offers endless links and ads for eyewear. Find any frame you desire online. If you are undecided when looking for new glasses, start with some of the most popular frames and designers. Seeing the top-rated and best-selling eyewear can inspire you. Lots of options can be a good thing, but it can also be overwhelming. No need to scroll through thousands of styles that don’t stand out. Visit a boutique that carries designer glasses and sunglasses.

Find the Perfect Fit

There’s more to a pair of glasses than the style and designer. How do they feel and how do they fit? These are important questions shoppers ask themselves when buying glasses online. Shop in person and find the best fit. Get a feel for metal and acetate frames before your final purchase. Trying on glasses can heavily influence your decision. It can be counterproductive to shop online and end up making a return because the glasses did not fit properly.

Customer Service

Visiting an eyewear boutique is a fulfilling experience. There are employees happy to help and assist their customers while shopping. Eyewear experts are there to guide you to the best decision based on your needs and preferences. Get a direct and instant answer to all your questions. Ask about the frames, fit and pricing. An optician will get your precise measurements when you’re ready to purchase. They can also help you with insurance questions and final costs. Online chats or e-mails cannot compare to in-store customer service.

Doctor Consultation

In addition to the employees, your optometrist can also offer valuable advice. There are several factors to consider when you receive a new prescription. Especially when glasses are for a stronger prescription, consult your optometrist before buying. Some shoppers may be interested in bifocals or trifocals. Your doctor can recommend specific eyewear best for your prescription. Keep in mind, glasses are an accessory, but they should enhance your vision.

Try Contacts Too

Another benefit of buying in-store versus online is that contacts are always an option too. Many eyewear boutiques also carry contacts. Some shops offer contact lens samples. If you are unsure or interested in contacts, ask when shopping for your glasses. You could walk away with a new pair of glasses and a supply of contacts after one visit. Stock up on glasses, contacts and other supplies without the shipping and handling costs.
